Kellie Pickler Unveils Emotional Ballad in Honor of Her Grandmother

Listen to “If It Wasn’t For A Woman” now.

Kellie Pickler continues her streak of new milestones with her most personal release yet, “If It Wasn’t For A Woman.”

Co-written by Pickler with her husband Kyle Jacobs and songwriter Brian Bunn, the song was inspired by and written in tribute to Pickler’s late grandmother, Faye Pickler, the woman who raised her and continues to serve as one of the most important inspirations in Pickler’s life. Pickler notably debuted the song with Jacobs accompanying her on piano during a performance at this year’s CMA Music Festival.

“This song is so incredibly special to me…it means a lot to me to be able to spotlight the love of the woman who helped shape me into the woman I am today,” the country music darling shares of her grandmother Faye, who passed away from lung cancer in 2002, “One of the most beautiful things about this song is that this is real life in a song. I think so many people will identify with this sweet story.”

The song is available now for download and streaming and currently climbing the iTunes Country chart.
